Wyoming, a land with few manmade attractions today, promotes its natural appeal as the first state in outdoor America. Its scenic wonders stretch across the state from Devils Tower to Yellowstone National Park. First witnessed by a group of adventurous fur traders in the 1800s, the area surrounding the crossroads at Jackson Hole was introduced to America through the paintings of Thomas Moran. Forever linked with the Rocky Mountain School of landscape painters, Moran received his first artistic training in Philadelphia, later heading westward. During the 1870s and 80s, Moran gained national notoriety when his western landscapes appeared in major publications.
